Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar was stretchered off in the second half against Marseille on Sunday after appearing to twist his ankle, although doctors have ruled out serious damage to the joint.

The Brazilian had his head in his hands and appeared to be in tears as he was carried off the pitch, leading to fears he could face a long spell on the sidelines.

The 26-year-old was attempting to play a ball in the 76th minute and after a tangle with Marseille midfielder Bouna Sarr, he landed awkwardly on his ankle and fell over in pain.

First reports from the American Hospital, where Neymar was treated in the company of team-mates Maxwell and Marquinhos, were positive for the star.

Neymar was cleared of suffering a fracture or serious sprain in his ankle, and his health will be monitored in the coming 48 hours.

At the very least he is expected to miss a week of action for PSG, with further tests expected to determine the severity of his injury.

With their talisman’s status in doubt and just 10 days until the match at Parc des Princes, PSG’s chances of advancing to the quarter-final have become even more slim after having lost 3-1 to at the Santiago Bernabeu on February 14.
